, by the way, pay unemployment insurance and before they got unemployed paid the taxes that support food stamps, has been widely accepted in this society, including by ronald reagan. i have no idea why this guy, cuccinelli, would want to borrow one of the worst lines ever uttered in american presidential politics and put it out there as he's starting to run for governor of virginia. he needs to get support in northern virginia. this is going to hurt him there. he's going to have a very tough race against terry mcauliffe, and he may actually break the streak that's been going on for decades that whoever wins the presidency, their party loses the governorship of virginia the next time. michael steele months ago i think on this program with me said the 47% line was a disaster. i don't know why anybody would repeat it. >> let me ask you this, it comes down to numbers. everybody knows there's some people are who cheating, some who aren't looking for a job. do you build a whole philosophy about maybe 5% of the people on welfare are just taking it easy or the republican notion 90% of the people on wel
the presidency, rammed through those bush tax cuts in march of his first year in. democrats get power, and they are free to use it. this time, we democrats won the white house. we picked up what? three seats or whatever it was in the senate, held on to the senate and picked up, up to 55 votes in the senate and picked up -- didn't win the house but won eight new seats in the house of representatives. so democrats have the power today. this was the best moment, the best opportunity we will ever have to do something important for this nation in order to get things done no matter which party is in charge and go aheadet rid of the filibuster or at least fix it so that it can't -- it's not subject to such abuse and refuse to do it. just walked away from that opportunity. harry reid did. diane, up in buffalo new york hey, diane, good morning. >> hey, bill. how are you? >> bill: i am good. just a little -- caller: i am not just disappointed. i am angry. i am so angry at harry reid. you know, we fight the fight every day against these republicans against t
reagan, you know, spoke so much about that and about taxes as well. >> well, i think that the real turning point for this president was that debt debate over the debt ceiling in july and august of 2011 and there an opportunity there and it came close, and i will not ascribe blame because there is probably enough going around when it looked like the president and john boehner were able to make a grand bargain, 3, $4 trillion in deficit reduction, it fell apart and rightly or wrongly it seems clear that the president and the white house decided at that point, we can't do business with these guys. boehner can't control the tea party element in his own house. and we're going to have to start running for president and running for president, pushing a liberal agenda. really from mid-summer, boehner says from labor day of 2011, he was very much running for president, pushing the liberal agenda. he was the protector of the middle class. and it is continued up through his re-election and now we see it in his inaugural address, very little talk about common ground. you know he basically dism
the tax credit that exists for consumers. it is important to keep a variety of options available for consumers. if we are going to meet the 2025 standards of 52.5 miles per gallon, it is going to take not just more hybrid vehicles, but it will also take continued improvement in the efficiency of the internal combustion engine, and companies are focused on that. when you walk around the auto show, they will have exhibits that show some of the things they're doing that make the traditional gasoline-powered engine even more efficient and increase gas mileage. host: next call from matt blunt, president of the american automotive policy council -- dug in syracuse, new york. caller: good morning. mr. blunt, i wonder if you could explain to the american taxpayer and consumer why the taxpayer bailout should not be totally paid back by the government, to the government, by the big three auto makers. guest: you know, the government has an ownership stake in general motors today. they have worked with the government, a general motors and the government have come to an agreement about the re
of no income tax and the morgans and mellons and carnegie and rockefellers. we created more wealth for everyone. so we can do this recognizing that the energy market is a $6 trillion market compared to one with what, four billion users going up to nine billion over the course of the next 20, 30 years. this is a place for us to recognize what other countries are doing and what our states that are growing are doing, which is there is an extraordinary amount of opportunity in modernizing america's energy grid. we don't even have a grid in america. we have a big open gap in the circle of america. east coast grid, west coast grid and texas grid and a line from chicago over to the dakotas. we can't sell energy from minnesota to arizona or arizona to massachusetts or to the coal states. it doesn't make sense and can't be a modern country if we don't fix that infrastructure. i would respectfully say to you that climate change is not something to be feared in response to -- the steps to respond to -- it's to be feared if we don't. 3,500 communities in our nation last year broke records for heat. we had
the senate democrats and president george herbert walker bush passed an agreement, including tax increases, to at last begin to tackle the deficit. and i remind everyone here as i take my leave from the senate, when president george h.w. bush returned from agreeing to a deficit reduction agreement at andrews air force base, he wrote in his personal diary that he might well have sealed his fate as a one-term president. he did what he thought was right for the country and he laid the groundwork for our ability to three times balance the budget at the end of the 1990's. that's courage, and the senate and the congress and the country need more of it. frankly, the problems that we live through today come from individual choices of senators themselves, not the rules. when an individual senator or a colludeing caucus determine that the comity essential to an institution like the senate is a barrier to individual ambition or party ambition, the country loses. those are the moments in which the senate fulfills not its responsibility to the people but its reputation as a sanctuary of gridlock. i ask
